Fox working on 'Clue' remake.

20th Century Fox is moving forward with a remake of the 1985 cult favorite Clue. Previously, Universal was working on it, but after they passed on the project Fox decided to do it. The original plan was to have the plot go beyond the mansion and make it a globe-trotting thriller. As a teenager I thought this film was hilarious and it still makes me laugh to this day. I'm hoping that this remake pays a lot of tribute to the original.

And it was pretty dang good too. It's going to be hard to find someone else to do Tim Curry's role.

Clue was such a cult classic. It'd be like remaking The Big Lewbowski.

Just... don't. Universal figured that out, why won't Fox? ;__;

This is from the company that did 3 Fantastic Four films in a row and failed miserably. And they're still eager to try again 😩

Yeah the original is so good that there really doesn't feel like anything more you can do to improve on it. But if there's a talented enough crew and cast behind it then I'm open to seeing it.

Here's an article about how the original film went from a forgotten flop to a cult classic.

Spielberg once said that Hollywood will have a crash and looking at some of the movies that have failed in the last few years, I see it as similar to how New Hollywood crashed

Fox also remade Rocky Horror. From the looks of that one, I don't have high hopes for this one.

Just like GREASE LIVE!, I will give it a watch when it airs. I don't have high hopes for it either.

Just follow Fox's example for listening to criticism; stick your head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist.

So thats why Family Guy has been on the air for so long.

Im not even a Rocky Horror fan and even I think that the remake looks like an insult to the original

Betcha anything they sanitize the shit out of "Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a Touch Me". Somehow I don't see Victoria Justice signing off on it as-is.

I'm still perplexed on how you can sing Sweet Transvestite while looking like a 100% biological woman... not in one shot has Laverne Cox looked any less than immaculate.

I mean Richard O'Brien had this to say about it

"I think that it is a project that is misconceived and (sadly for the players) badly cast. The producer and director seem to have missed the point entirely. I will say no more as I may be tempted to say too much."

...A thought just occurred to me. Will they simply skip that number? I mean, some might find it a little bit un-PC nowadays.

Nah, it's in the trailer

And as you can see... Laverne Cox can't sing. Which for Sweet Transvestite doesn't much matter, but she's gotta sing "I'm Going Home" which is actually a legit song and requires some acting chops...
